Traditional Five-Element Acupuncturist Paul Adkins developed the protocol. He treats clients in Cornwall, UK, and has trained practitioners worldwide to practise his treatment.
Cosmetic acupuncture training is available via our Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture Online Course. Acupuncture practitioners can attend acupuncture workshops, or one-to-one facial rejuvenation acupuncture training can be arranged.

The course has been great, a step by step approach which allowed me to integrate everything in detail. I liked the fact to have the assignments and wait for a feedback (very useful). I’ve always wanted to do a facial acupuncture course since the beginning of my degree as an acupuncturist and this course has… provided me with the knowledge and tools to carry out future treatments with confidence!

Thank you !! Really love your course, Paul. It is simple, organized and invokes some deeper thinking. I like all of that.
This was a wonderful experience to learn facial enhancement acupuncture from you during the workshop at New Delhi, India. I hope I will be able to help many of my patients in near future with the skills learned from you.
Hi! I really enjoyed this course! I think in school we didn’t learn/focus on jade rollers and Gua sha techniques for the face so this was wonderful! I just finished your Facial Enhancement Acupuncture and I absolutely love the combination of both! I cannot wait to practice. I think the videos are extremely helpful! I… think the videos help solidify the information! Thank you again!, Read more “Kathleen Meersman, Chicago, USA. FEA & Jade Roller Online Masterclass, December 2021”
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. I have learned a whole wealth of knowledge. I got enough confidence from this course to be able to confidently practice Facial Enhancement on friends and clients. I have gotten nothing but positive remarks from everyone. They are in turn recommending these procedures to their friends and relatives.. I… will strongly recommend this course to anyone with interest in Facial Enhancement. I will add this to my Acupuncture for Chronic Pain Practice. Read more “Maria D. Encarnacion MD, Virginia, USA. FEA Online Course, April 2016”
The workshop with Paul was a great experience – very relaxing and informative, but most of all, there was plenty of hands-on practice and observation. Paul is obviously very passionate about what he does, and that was infectious. To be able to learn in such a small group was a very unusual experience, and all the… more rewarding because of it. It was relaxed and good-humoured, and Paul’s background in sales and marketing has inspired me to come back and look anew at how I approach this business of earning a living.

Thanks Paul, I have really enjoyed the course and have found your comments very encouraging. I very much agree with the sentiment you noted at the end of the course – that acupuncture has a lot to offer as part of a ‘beauty treatment’, as real beauty comes from the inside and acupuncture treatment helps… to unlock it. I am looking forward to getting started. Read more “Jodi Hawkes, Rutland, UK. FEA Online Course, September 2019”
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I thought the videos were well put together and the music accompanying them really enhanced them. I already do an acupressure face massage and so the rollers and gua sha will really enhance this.
I have totally loved this course. In fact, I am just so glad I have done all three courses that you offer because there is so much cross over in each. This course is particularly well laid out and demonstrated. Thank you.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the session on Saturday. Relaxed but very professional it showed me a lot of useful techniques besides the facial rejuvenation. Thank you very much.
Your seminar was full of information. thank you for the knowledge you gave us.
I enjoyed the course enormously! Thank you very much for comparting your knowledge, I appreciate it very much! I am now starting to work with this and the people seem to be really excited about it.
I thought this course was fantastic, a great platform to do an online course on, gave me flexibility to learn around my job and communication was always clear and at the times outlined on the course. I enjoyed it, sure it will open up an avenue for income and scope for introducing new patients to… acupuncture that might not have tried before. Read more “K.D., Scotland.

I really enjoyed my training with Paul and would highly recommend it. The course was informative, well targeted and had just the right balance of theory, practice and some great anecdotes! It was a pleasure to learn from Paul directly, and I now feel confident that I could offer this treatment to my clients. Thank… you! Read more “Catherine Obiorah, London, UK.

Dear Paul. I really enjoyed the course. Its great that you had to feel no pressure in finishing within a time limit… When starting up my next season I feel confident to start promoting this type of treatment in my clinic.

It was a wonderful experience to participate in your seminar at Delhi.
Hi Paul, Just wanted to say what a fantastic day Saturday was, I am raring to go and just waiting for needles to arrive, what a frustration that Monday was a Bank Holiday and everywhere was closed so I couldn’t order till yesterday!! Please thank all of your patients for being so nice and friendly… and allowing me to sit in and J for letting me practice, that made all the difference. Read more “Margaret Millward, Scotland. FEA Masterclass, August 2007”
Hello Paul, I enjoyed your F.E.A. course very much. The required research into anesthesia and auricular acupuncture gave me and even greater respect and interest in the subject. Its possibilities seem limitless. The use of the intradermals has given me another powerful tool to add to helping the growing requirements of our patients. I am… happy to be able to offer them this natural holistic method of achieving similar results usually seen only in more medically, invasive procedures. Your support and feed-back was both positive and encouraging. Thank you very much and well done! Read more “Pauline So, Gibraltar. FEA Online Course, June 2012”
I thought that course was very good and detailed, having videos of different needling techniques I thought was very good and useful. Overall I really enjoyed the course, I will be recommending it to my acupuncture friends!
Thank you Paul. Your course was interesting, refreshing and encouraging.
I really enjoyed the course so thank you very much.
Paul, thank you so much for a great day: full of inspiration, learning and fun. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to getting all the ‘stuff’ I need to get started at the Facial Enhancement.
I am having good results, and enjoying this very much. Just emailed the link to my friend to join the online course, lets hope she does.
Thanks for an amazing course. It was very informative, interesting and creative. It has added a lot to my practice. My patients are also enjoying the amazing results we are able to achieve from these treatments.
Thanks for the fantastic FEA masterclass held in Leamington Spa last Sunday! Wish we had more time for the practice, I really enjoyed it!
Hi Paul, First I would like to thank you very much for the excellent FEA training you are offering. The content is just right, not too heavy but with all necessary details to allow fellows to start the great adventure of FEA. The videos are of excellent quality, very well explained and full of small… tips for the junior FEA fellows. I really enjoyed your course. I would also like to thank you for the very prompt responses, for all your appreciations and advice. They were much appreciated! I warmly recommend your course to all acupuncturists who are looking to offer their patients a healthy way to feel good and look better. Thank you very much. Read more “Narcisa Mesaros, Belgium. FEA Online Course, October 2015”
The course was completely different from what I expected. As a physiotherapist I do not delve much into the Chinese medicine side of acupuncture so learning more about that side of the treatment was very interesting. There is a lot of information and the course is designed well, in little sections to master before moving on to… the next. I particularly liked the videos showing the needling techniques. A lot of the techniques, particularly the intradermal needles, took a bit of practising but don’t let that put you off. I’m really looking forward to seeing the results on patients. The course leaves you with enough knowledge and and confidence in your new skills to go straight out and use them. I would not hesitate to recommend this course! Read more “Anna Nanavati, Scunthorpe, UK. FEA Online Course, April 2016”
Thanks for a great course in Leamington yesterday, I really enjoyed it.
It’s been great working on the course, very, very well put together and very informative.
I am really enjoying doing my facial work and getting some fab results.
I really enjoyed the course, and I intend to implement the program in my acupuncture therapies.
Hi Paul, just a short note to thank you for the brilliant course. Your infectious enthusiasm for the work, along with your generous and encouraging teaching style really made the day a pleasure. I have already been approached by a local clinic who found my details via your website! Hope to keep in touch, cheers… for now, Paul. Read more “Paul Khosla, Devon, UK. FEA Masterclass, June 2008”
Dear Paul, Thank you a lot for this course. It was really exiting for me to see and understand how classical acupuncture is used in a Facial Enhancement Acupuncture. As regarding the course, very instructive for me were video lessons. Even a doctor with experience sometimes finds it difficult to visualize some details for himself.… However, the video helped me a lot. Moreover, I revised several passages a few times-many after the passage of time and a new course. In order to compare my skills with the ones shown. This is also very useful. The methods of combining and using different needles were important for me. Well, of course, your author’s methodology, I just start to work with it, deserves special praise.

An essential part of the Course providing first hand experience on approach, technique and an opportunity to talk with Clients who have reaped the benefits of the FEA Programme. A most rewarding, informative and relaxed day. I came away inspired. Thank you Paul.
Thank for the course it has been a really wonderful learning experience…
I found the Facial Enhancement Acupuncture Course very comprehensive, easy to understand and enjoyable. The e-lessons and the videos are very clear and concise. l chose this course because not only concentrates on the face but on the whole person as well. The clients l practiced on could see a difference after the second treatment.… l would recommended this course to anyone interested in this field. Read more “Rosa Vilaseca, Nottingham, UK. FEA online Course, August 2017”
I must say the video demo is the best way of learning and I will keep reading my notes and it is a very nice course and glad I have now come on board with it. I hope it can take me far and along with my natural facials attached with it or as a… treatment alone. Read more “Valerie Scott, Kent, UK. Jade Roller Online Masterclass, February 2011”
Many thanks for this course Paul. It is more than difficult enough to complete a 3 year degree when you have young children, let alone complete further training. The online course fits perfectly into my busy schedule of Acupuncturist and full-time Mum. With the TCM training I gained during my Degree at Lincoln University, this… course was straight forward and easy to follow – it was purely the use of intra-dermal needles which I needed guidance on – and the video which supports this course is excellent for this purpose. Great assignments to get you thinking about what you are learning, along with nice, straight forward tests at the end of each unit, to ensure you have really taken notice of what you have been doing and learning about. Many thanks for having this course as an online option. It really has helped me to fulfil my dream of learning this protocol while still continuing my everyday life – and setting up my business too!!! Yours with thanks.

My colleague and I recently attended the one day Masterclass in Facial Enhancement Acupuncture at Paul’s clinic in Truro, Cornwall. It was a long way for us to travel (from Liverpool) however it was well worth our efforts. The day was extremely informative and instructive, with opportunity to gain practical experience in facial acupuncture.Paul made… us feel very welcome, the day was very relaxed and informal and conducive to a really good learning environment. We have since practiced what we learned on the day with clients giving us such positive feedback. We would highly recommend the day for any acupuncture practitioner who would like to offer an additional service for their clients (or family members!!!). Read more “Julie Tryer, Liverpool, UK.

Thanks so much, this has been a very wonderful learning experience.
Hi Paul, thanks for putting together a great course. I have found the videos extremely helpful and particularly liked the fact that you have done a short video on each section of points, which has helped me to learn and memorise the treatment using a step-by-step process. Having regular assignments in place before being able… to move on to the next section of the course is also a great idea, as it has made me slow down and ensure I am internally processing each stage properly before being able to move on.

This course I found to be more comprehensive than the one that was included in my course curriculum at our College here in Markham, Ontario.

Hi Paul, I have really enjoyed this course, the format suited me very well. Right from the beginning, learning more about collagen production, through to the learning videos; which were especially clear, and easy to access and review whenever I needed. I also thought that your accessibility for help and feedback was good. After completing… my first MNT session last week, I feel confident that this will be a great alternative to offer my clients, and help boost my business. I’d definitely recommend it to other practitioners. Onwards and upwards… best wishes! Marie Read more “Maria Brobyn, Cheltenham, UK. MNT Online Course, January 2017”
Thanks for a great course on Sunday – you created a lovely environment to learn and work in.
I am a 5 Element Acupuncturist who attended Paul Adkins Cosmetic Acupuncture work shop. I really enjoyed the day. Paul is a professional and relaxed person who has a great sense of humour. His explanation of the procedure was very detailed and he was happy to answer the many questions that were thrown at him.… I particularly like the fact that the procedure not only had facial enhancement benefits but that the points chosen also helped the patient to feel relaxed and content at the same time. As this is a strong treatment I found the 5 Element techniques that can be used at the end of the treatment rebalanced and grounded the patient. It was such a joy to attend a workshop, like this, one that is rooted in 5 Element knowledge. We practised on each other in the afternoon; 24 hours after the treatment I could not say exactly how I had benefited from the treatment but I knew that my face looked better, brighter and different. At the time I was suffering with dark circles and bags under my eyes which has certainly improved. One day is enough to learn the procedure, but I know that I must go home and practise right away so that I do not forget anything. I can’t wait to get practising and provide this service in my clinic. Read more “Karen Michelle Vickery, Leicestershire, UK. FEA Workshop, October 2012”

Dear Paul, Many thanks to you for everything! Shame the course is over. I would love to come back for further training because you are such a good instructor and competent practitioner. Your clinic gave the best atmosphere and surrounding possible and your hospitality made it even better. Thanks for patiently answering all the questions.… I’ll recommend your course to all my colleagues who’ll want to make progress in Facial Enhancement Acupuncture.

I have really enjoyed studying Facial Enhancement Acupuncture and given that I live in the North East of England using this online facility has proved cost effective. The site is easy to navigate, information easy to understand and includes some very good quality training videos. The assessment process is straightforward with a mix of multiple choice,… short answer questions and case studies. All assignments and photographic evidence is easy to upload. Support from the tutor is excellent, all questions answered promptly with detailed quality feedback on all assignments.

Thanks so much for this course, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and even though it took me a long time to complete, it was great that I could go at my own pace.

FEA Online Course, August 2019”
Firstly from a personal standpoint I have really enjoyed studying cosmetic acupuncture, I valued meeting you earlier this year and was inspired by your practice, your knowledge and mastery of the subject. I have found an art which has by its own definition the potential for true artistry in its technique and also treats patients… on many levels. It is such great contrast to conventional clinic work, and a really refreshing direction to follow. It is my objective to make cosmetic work the major part of my practice. From a technical view I have found the course first class. The lessons are well structured and progress perfectly allowing the skills to be developed step by step. All videos and lessons are totally clear and presented in a way that allows for quick learning. Having such clarity helps to give the student confidence to work with patients right from the start. I appreciated the building up of skills step by step as this helps transferring theoretical work in to practical application in safe understandable steps . I was not left in doubt as to what to do next or how to approach a patient. The Course brings the art to life. I found the technical side of the online course straight forward, being in the pencil and paper generation I was pleasantly surprised how logically it all fits together as an online study.
Being part of an organisation and forum is important for ongoing learning and I can appreciate the need for science and development in clinical practice. This Course and organisation clearly does provide on going support and facilities for continued development. In conclusion I have found this learning course both inspirational and educationally focused. It has provided the confidence and expertise to work in this field. Read more “Ian Felix, Birmingham, UK.

I really enjoyed learning this new skill and look forward to adding it to the services I offer in my clinic. I like that this method incorporates elements of TCM to enhance the client’s experience and that it allows me the opportunity to help people during FEA treatment and also to introduce them to acupuncture for health and wellbeing which… they might not otherwise have thought of.

In summery Paul’s teaching of this subject is refreshing, motivational and insightful. In the absence of practical learning in a taught workshop, the expert way the online course was structured and taught made learning interesting and the information provided logical and easy to understand. I feel the assignments and tests complemented the course and… served to consolidate the taught theory well. Lastly it has served to inspire me to go and offer facial acupuncture as a service that I know can make a positive difference! Thoroughly recommended. Read more “James Pritchard, Kent, UK.

Paul, thank you very much for the very nice time in your clinic. It was absolutely amazing in terms of practical skill I’ve got from you.
I found the course to be much more in depth and informative than I had initially thought that it would be, and I really appreciated this. I was a bit apprehensive about undertaking an online course in needling instruction as there is no one physically there to oversee needling skills. However, I liked that I… had to take pictures and have my needling reviewed, this has made me feel confident in my ability to go forward and offer this treatment. Thank you!

Thanks again for a brilliant workshop last Saturday, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to begin on my first patient next week.
Hi Paul, thanks so much for the course, it has been extremely useful. As a western medical trained acupuncturist it has been a real learning curve to learn about TCA and it’s influence on facial acupuncture, really interesting and informative. I’m very excited to get started properly and feel confident in going ahead.
Hello, I have finished the course off now. Very interesting, and I have been getting good results especially with the saggy necks! I have enjoyed being able to go at my pace, and having time to read around the subjects covered.
I cannot praise enough the standard and quality of the training I received from Paul Adkins both in cosmetic acupuncture and Micro Needle Therapy. From the welcoming and tranquil environment of the clinic to the detailed training which was delivered with care, patience and competence. I felt at ease within minutes of arriving and chatting.… Paul is very open, interested and supportive, not only with me, but with his patients. When observing a treatment each stage was explained in a very clear and concise way and I could ask as many questions as I wanted. By the time I carried out a full treatment, I felt so comfortable and confident. I found the treatments a pleasure to give and the results quite remarkable. Paul’s patient’s glowing and vibrant complexions are testimony to the effectiveness of cosmetic/facial acupuncture and Micro Needle Therapy and I look forward to bringing these treatments to the salons and clinics in the North East. Training with Paul Adkins has been one of the most worthwhile investments I have made in order to enhance my future prospects as a practitioner of acupuncture. Read more “Anne Moore, Newcastle, UK.

I really enjoyed the Facial Enhancement Acupuncture training. The balance of the day was just right, allowing time for us to hear from Paul, see a treatment being demonstrated and then practice our own skills. I have come away feeling really enthused about adding Facial Acupuncture to my offer.
Thank you for another great course, Paul. I think this is a great addition to the learning for the FEA and dermal roller courses in a much deeper way, and it was well worth the extra cost and study. I love the gua sha addition, as I have been asked about this method as a… facial in clinic. Read more “Claire Sharples, Cirencester, UK. Jade Roller Online Masterclass, January 2019”

First of all, it’s a great honour to be a part of this course. I learned a lot, I get experience and knowledge in using different kinds of needles which are useful and effective. I’ll use some of them during the course. THANK YOU for this course, Paul – expert – you explained the concept… with easy to understand video and clear instructions. Points are well explained. I’m grateful to have the chance to participate in an online course like this…. Read more “Gagandeep Kaur, Amritsar, india. FEA Online Course, June 2021”
Thank you very much, I really enjoyed the online course. It was helpful to view video every time I was stuck.
I would like to thank you very much for a great day last Monday. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the cups of tea! I am really looking forward to using the new techniques.
I thought the class was great, I think adding this to the cosmetic acupuncture course I already took will be very helpful to give a more well rounded treatment.
It is a fantastic course. This course is really helpful for me to open up a new direction in my career. It is not just face rejuvenation technique, but also it is a rejuvenation of my TCM and Acupuncture knowledge and skills. I can’t wait to add this new treatment to my practice. Thank you… again Paul for bringing us the brilliant courses. Read more “Vivienne Wang, Australia. FEA Online Course, FEA Online Course”
Thank you so much for such an enjoyable and illuminating training on Saturday last. I thought it was terrific, and was very impressed!
I really enjoyed my one-to-one FEA training with Paul. Paul is very inspiring and enthusiastic – the day gave me the practical hands on experience and confidence to put my skills into practice straight away. I am so pleased with the results and my patients look amazing!
My feedback on the course includes meeting some wonderful new professional people that I intend to stay in contact with. Paul has a great teaching style that is just right, it offers enough food for thought with enough practical time to ask questions as they arise which instills confidence.
I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed the Facial Enhancement Course. It has been so interesting and the course itself so easy to follow. Thank you for your feedback on each section. I love how the course is broken up into those sections too. I am excited to be offering this… treatment to my clients, here is what one of the models has said: “I am so happy with the results so far and am now going to give up my botox for this treatment, I love it!” And so do I! Thankyou Paul. Read more “Suzanne Haughey Purdie, East Lothian, Scotland. FEA Online Course, September 2020”
I would give this course 10 stars for the way it has been designed and the teachings delivered! Although I have been doing acupuncture for 13 years I have learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed doing my online course with Paul. The lessons are so easy to follow and the videos go really well to… understand needle techniques. This is the first time I have used intradermal needles and the way Paul has captured it on the video made it extremely easy to understand and follow. I must mention that Paul is always available for his students and responded back straight away whenever I e-mailed him with any queries. Being an MSK physiotherapist this has been a perfect course for me. Being able to do it online at my own pace has helped especially as COVID happened and I have a young baby – I was able to work around my job, home and child. The detox protocol is also a first for me and since using it before the treatment the results have been fantastic which noticeable changes in the first session. I am so glad I found and did this course because I already have a list of people who want to come in for treatment. Read more “Shreya Kane, London, UK. FEA Online Course, August 2020”
Hi Paul, just to say what a fabulous time I had on Saturday, it was really what I needed to get myself moving on the acupuncture front! I do hope to come down again.
Thank you Paul for such an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable day! The course is set out brilliantly, with a good balance of theory and practical, and most importantly plenty of time to ask questions. Paul was on hand constantly to guide us through the process and give us constructive feedback and I’ve left feeling confident… in my abilities to carry out this treatment in my clinic. Read more “Charlotte Janes, Jersey. FEA Masterclass, May 2017”
I decided to branch out and complete the FEA course to provide a cosmetic treatment for my patients. I decided on the FEA with Paul due to many recommendations from my colleagues at university and within the industry. Paul was brilliantly supportive throughout and provided feedback promptly. The course detail was thorough, providing process and reasoning behind it,… along with full explanations as to why points were being used. The assignments really helped with the learning process, having to further research during study before being able to move to the next section. Really enjoyed doing the course and would certainly recommend it myself to my colleagues. Thank you, Paul! Read more “Kelly King, Sunderland, UK. FEA Online Course, September 2021”
I attended the master class having practiced auricular acupuncture for two years and, although less experienced than others on the course, Paul always made me feel confident at every stage. I had not needled certain body points or used needles over 3mm so I had to get used to the technique and acupuncture points before… I could fully focus on the Facial Enhancement side. I never at any stage felt overwhelmed and the hundreds of questions I threw at Paul during the day were answered clearly. We saw evidence of the remarkable results achieved through this practice as Paul demonstrated on two of his female clients and we also practised on each other. I left the day feeling really inspired and excited for the future. Paul was extremely helpful and supportive both prior, during and after the course. I would defiantly recommend this day to any practitioner looking to extend their knowledge and enter a different aspect of acupuncture. Read more “Tara Harley, Brighton, UK. FEA Masterclass, 9th October 2010”
The course was amazing and I love it. Thank you for the information and for being there when needed. You have given me all answers for my questions so thank you once again.
Dear Paul, Thank you so much for the training in Facial Acupuncture, I wish you were nearer as I would definitely have treatments, my face is still glowing, despite the stressful train journey home which took about 8 hours…. I really enjoyed the course and thought you were very motivational and I feel much more… confident now in what I already do. It helps to see how other people work and I have felt a bit isolated working by myself. Anyway, I have ordered some supplies and hope to get these and start to practice on a couple of willing friends before I bring it in to my practice. I will definitely join your network. Good luck with your teaching, I know you will do really well. Once again many thanks. Best wishes. Read more “J., Essex, UK. FEA Masterclass, 7th November 2004”
Hi Paul, Thank you for this fantastic course. I am very impressed and feel satisfied that I took this course as opposed to a live course in another province. I was impressed by your quick feedback and email responses to my questions.
I am writing again to tell you that my Bell’s palsy treatments are so successful I get new patients all the time, having heard of other’s success. My patient who has has the condition for 20 years is even getting feeling back in the muscles of her face, and more expression on the affected side.… I am SO grateful to have learned from you!! Read more “FEA Practitioner, Update – Bell’s Palsy”
A very comprehensive and detailed online course, it is definitely not the easy option. I feel much more knowledgeable about Facial Enhancement Acupuncture than I feel I would be after a single days training. This online course has allowed me to learn in depth the reasons for using certain points and how to follow the… Facial Enhancement procedure in a staged approach. The test questions and assignments carefully tested my understanding and ability to transfer my knowledge to the patients specific areas of concern. I have gradually built on my skills and knowledge and learned how to adapt the treatments to suit the individuals requirements. My patients are very happy with the Facial Enhancement Treatment and all have rebooked. Some have even booked courses. Word of mouth advertising has created a steady flow of business. I am very happy. This course has everything you need to be a confident and competent Facial Enhancement practitioner. I would certainly recommend this course. Thank you Paul for sharing your expertise. Read more “Doreen Roberts, North Wales. FEA Online Course, May 2018”
Thanks for your visit to INDIA, I hope you must have enjoyed Indian hospitality, we learned a lot from you.
I attended the Facial Enhance Acupuncture course with Paul Adkins last week. The course was far better than I was expecting. Paul is a great teacher, very personable, friendly, knowledgeable and highly skilled. It is clear he has a passion for teaching as well as acupuncture. I had quite a few questions for Paul and… he was more than happy to answer all of them thoroughly. The practical demonstrations and training were also very good, clear and easy to follow once shown. While doing the practical work, Paul comes around to each person while they are practicing the techniques to make sure they are doing it correctly and offer guidance if needed. After receiving treatment myself from a fellow student during the course, I was quite surprised to see noticeable changes straight away after the first treatment. It’s clear that the techniques taught are very effective. Highly recommended! Read more “Stephen West, Kent, UK. FEA Workshop, November 2019”
Dear Paul, Thanks a lot for the opportunity to participate in the Online Facial Acupuncture Course. In my opinion, the program of the course is structured really well.

For me,… this was one of the strongest advantages of the course. Well done Paul! Read more “Dr Arkady Kotlyar, Israel. FEA Online Course, September 2009”

Thank you so much for creating this course. I have to say I was not sure what to expect with an online acupuncture course, but I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed completing it. It was nice to do a course were I could take my time, and not have someone standing over… me applying pressure. I will definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking of taking up facial acupuncture. Read more “Chris Warwick, Wrexham, Wales. FEA Online Course, May 2019”
I enrolled to this on line course of Facial Enhancement acupuncture with high expectations and enthusiasm. Within the first three lessons I realized that I have chosen the correct path towards the proficiency of cosmetic acupuncture. I enjoyed leaning with clear instructions and high quality videos.The lessons were excellent, and I did assignments with great… enthusiasm and fervor. Mr. Paul Adkins is a proficient teacher, with an encouraging and positive attitude towards his students. At the end of the course, all my expectations were met perfectly. Thank you Paul for your course of instructions on FEA. Your step by step approach was excellent. I would recommend this course of study for any practicing Acupuncturists who are interested in advancing their field of practice in Cosmetic Acupuncture. Read more “Dr Roy Perera, Sri Lanka.

If you are thinking of attending one of Paul’s courses I highly recommend both the Facial Enhancement Acupuncture and Micro Needling Therapy. Paul and Stacey were both extremely helpful throughout the whole process, from booking to arriving at the course. Paul was kind enough to pick me up and drop me back to my accommodation each day… which took the stress out having to get taxi’s etc. The courses were well organised and have a great balance of therapy and practical. I am very excited to start using my new skills in my clinic in the near future. Paul is very approachable and I hope to keep in contact in the future to discuss any new treatments and courses which may arise. Thank you. Read more “Hayley Foster, Chelmsford, UK.

Just a quick, but massive thank you for the very brilliant day I spent with you a couple of weeks ago. I learnt enough to make me feel confident to have a go – I’ve got my first client booked in tomorrow!
I have really enjoyed the course – it is great that you can work at your own pace, the assignments are varied and interesting.
The four of us were really happy about the course with Paul we had last week and we are all going to give cosmetic treatments soon which is really encouraging!
Dear Paul!I came all the way from Israel for your workshop, not knowing who I am going to meet, and as soon as I stepped into your clinic I knew I was in the right place! Thank you for this wonderful workshop, I learned so much from you. This technique is a great tool for… me, I am offering something quite new and it gives me a good boost.Thank you for your kind hospitality and for making me feel so welcome and comfortable.

I truly enjoyed the course, the quality of the lessons and the videos. It was one of the best online course I have ever taken.
I have found the course to be well structured and will definitely be recommending it to fellow acupuncturists. I found the short practical demonstrations to be particularly useful and also liked that I could look back over previous lessons once they were completed. Thank you for your time, and encouraging support.
I have enjoyed the course, thank you Paul. Although having done a course before with Virginia Doran which was great. Due to lack of use of that information this was a lovely refresher for me. I felt your amount of contact and the speed of you getting things marked was better than advertised. I felt… a flow to the course, it was easy to follow and I found the treatments were put in at appropriate times, so that you didn’t get too far ahead without Practicing and seeing how that practice felt.

As I am… familiar with gua sha and rollers it was easy to follow the videos. I really liked the acupressure techniques and I am looking forward to incorporating them into my treatments.

Thank you so much for offering this course, enjoyed it and hope to get busy using it ASAP.
I really enjoyed this course, good relevant content delivered with clear guidance in easily manageable chunks. Having completed this course I now feel confidant in my ability to assess and effectively treat with facial acupuncture, well worth the investment, I’m kind of sorry it’s over! The results for my friend and practice patient have been… remarkable, we are both very pleased with the results and have agreed to continue with a course of treatment. Read more “Teri Shanahan, Co.

My initial thoughts were of how would a online acupuncture course work however, I needn’t have worried because the course was really enjoyable. Using photogenic evidence for assignments was really great in that it was great feedback for myself to have a visual tool to use. I have also purchased the book which I carry… with me all the time I enjoy the tips and guidance it gives me. I have no doubt that I will enrol in another course in the future.

The website is slick and works very well, so together with your fast responses it has been a positive & fascinating experience.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and it was just what I needed to give me the confidence to get back to work after a two year gap where I had become rusty. All the lessons were very informative.

I trained as an auricular acupuncturist and when I read about facial acupuncture it really interested me.

Paul is very passionate about his work and loves… what he does. I enjoyed the full packed day and to this day Paul has been very helpful. I liked the workshop as there was lots of hands on practice and a chance to ask any questions. I came away from the workshop extremely positive and eager to put it all into practice.

Having all the equipment sent and ready to use was really helpful. Conducting the very first treatment is slightly nerve racking however… this quickly passes. My clients face has changed and improved since the treatments and people have even complimented her on her skin tone and appearance.

Dear Paul, I enjoyed a lot the MNT training you are offering.

A BIG thank you to Paul at Facial Enhance for the brilliant teaching at the “hands on” MasterClass. If this is an area you think you would like to add to your practice – then don’t hesitate. Paul shares his knowledge and encouragement so that you can incorporate facial rejuvenation acupuncture into your clinic.
Thank you for offering this course and providing details in the instructional videos that have really helped me understand and apply the various needles and point the proper way. I bought your book first and really enjoyed it but was still desiring to get a more in depth understanding of how to use many of… the face lifting, neck and jaw needling techniques and how to properly insert the intra dermal needles. Your course has more than provided all of this for me and I am now feeling much more confident in my understanding and ability to offer these facial enhancing treatments to the various skin issues and ages of women that will be seeking this type of treatment. I have been practicing acupuncture for 25 years and was getting somewhat burned out on the usual treatments even though my patients are still just as thrilled with their results. After learning this new technique and taking your course, I now have a renewed excitement and am looking forward to offering this treatment as a natural and safe way to reverse signs of aging while also balancing the internal organs. Again, many thanks for this wonderful course! Read more “Kim Burger, Hawaii, USA. FEA Online Course, February 2021”
What a wonderful informative weekend of training with the founder of Facial Enhance Paul Adkins @facialenhance to continue to learn more complex techniques to offer our clients in non surgical treatments.

Fantastic format that pushes you to the next level, thank you so much for the opportunity and the positive feedback. Will hopefully attend a workshop in the future to consolidate skills. Cheers, Jamie
The course has been very informative. It is very well structured and supplements the text theory with very easy to follow images and videos. The team is always on hand to help in any way and provide valuable feedback. One of the best courses for online facial acupuncture I have come across.
I have spent 2 days one-on-one training with Paul – FEA and MNT. It was a really fantastic and productive time and apart from the practical teaching I got a lot of ideas and thought-provoking advice from him. It is brilliant to became a member of the network and enjoy its benefits. I would highly… recommend him and this course. Read more “Dr Tibor Voros, Milton Keynes, UK.

Thank you Paul, It’s been a real pleasure to learn your technique. Beyond what I had imagined. I am trained to be a TCM practitioner. It’s all very serious and stern at times. I was looking for something a little ‘lighter’ to bring variety to my practice and thought about facial rejuvenation. To be totally honest,… I didn’t think it would be this complete and deep. Now that I’ve been practicing your technique for the last 3 weeks or so, I realize the impact we can have on our patients and on so many levels, way beyond the cosmetic aspect of it. For all this I’m very grateful. Read more “Olivier Coste Renoult, France. FEA Online Course, February 2014”

Many thanks Stacey and Paul for organising such a great day last Saturday. I really enjoyed it and learnt alot. I found your teaching style and the small group really great for learning these kinds of techniques and look forward to catching up with you soon.
Thank you so much for your kindness and encouragement with the FEA course that I completed today. It was such a great experience and I have learned so much from you.
I’d just like to say how much I enjoyed your workshop on Saturday. You were clear and straightforward in the way you demonstrated the techniques and I came away feeling well grounded in the basic principles of facial acupuncture.

I’ve really enjoyed working through the programme and I’ve definitely gained a lot from it both on theoretical and practical levels.
Hi paul… it was an amazing experience learning with you. Thank you.
Really enjoyed learning this course, I’ll use it alongside with your Facial Enhancement Acupuncture course.
The workshop is about more than just reproducing a set of points prescription for cosmetic acupuncture. Paul offers fantastic advice on how to market this as a business; it is clear that Paul is passionate about making his clients feel pampered and feeling internally balanced as well as offering facial enhancement treatment. I fully recommend… the workshop as you get to have a treatment yourself as well as practice the techniques on your peers. a laid back, informative and lovely day.

I really enjoyed working my way through the MNT course. The videos were step by step and very clear, really useful tool to look back on also. The assignments were relevant and tested my understanding of the course the whole way through.

You were very responsive throughout the course as ever and reply quickly to all queries. Overall an enjoyable and informative course! Read more “Kaya Harper, Kent, UK. MNT Online Course, July 2019”
Great day today in Leamington. It’s a fantastic treatment and I loved doing the intradermals – it felt vaguely surgical!
I really enjoyed this course. It is very informative and well laid out. I like that you can go at your own pace, leaving it for a few weeks if needed or being able to get through several modules in quick succession when time allows. Paul was very quick to respond when I had questions… – I would recommend the course to anyone looking to bring facial acupuncture into their clinic; the fact that only qualified acupuncturists are allowed to register was also a selling point for me.

Before starting, I wondered how easy a distance learning course would be. However, I found the course to be very well supported and flexible enough to fit in with daily life as a working Mum.

I enjoyed the course, thanks, very informative and enjoyable.
I have really enjoyed the course and the way it was presented. I had already read your book on the topic and the course with the videos was a great way to fully understand the way of FEA treatment.
Absolutely loved this course. I could not decide whether to attend the workshop course or learn online so Covid 19 made the decision for me and online it was! The format and content of the online course was excellent. Tremendous support from Paul throughout, he really is an excellent, knowledgeable and encouraging tutor. I have… completed this course very confident in offering FEA. Would highly recommend to any practitioner. Coming from a Western Medical acupuncture background, this has absolutely whetted my appetite for 5 elements. Read more “Kate van Rensburg, Monmouthshire, South Wales. FEA Online Course, August 2020”
I attended Paul’s workshop in November 2004 and have been able to successfully integrate this in my practice. Facial Enhancement Acupuncture is a wonderful natural way to remain young looking, but also to feel healthy and in perfect balance as many of my patients can testify. One of my clients said: “It is like having… natural Botox, I can feel all the muscles in my face tighten”. A lady of 75 came to see me yesterday and commented on how awful she felt on arrival but was full of energy when she left and that her lines were not as pronounced – proving age is no barrier to wanting to look good!

Just wanted to thank you for your time and expertise on Wednesday. It gave me alot to think about and adds another bow so to speak.
Really enjoyed the course on Saturday.
Thank you for a lovely learning experience. It was indeed a valuable addition to my limited knowledge of the subject. Enjoyed the practical aspect of it.
Thank you so much for the course, it’s been a real joy to work through. I agree that patients want to look better and I have been asked in the past if some needles would help with lines and could I include that in a treatment? Well, now I feel confident and happy to be… able to speak about and provide this kind of treatment. I particularly like that it is integrated within ‘traditional’ acupuncture, be that Five Element or TCM, whatever tradition you have trained in. It feels grounded within treating the patient as a whole – the patient does not only receive a facial enhancement treatment, they benefit from it being grounded within the fundamental concept of treating them holistically. Everyone benefits from an AE drain, it is such a crucial treatment. The structure of the course is easy to follow and flexible to access. Being able to set your own time deadlines, was also a huge benefit for me. It’s easy to contact you by email or through the website and you always reply in very good time. I thoroughly recommend the course to my peers and am looking forward to including this in the work I do in clinic. Read more “Donna Reeve, Norfolk, UK. FEA Online Course, March 2022”
Thanks for a really informative and fun day on Saturday.
Thank you Paul for sharing and teaching all your knowledge, this was a wonderful course to take, I highly recommend it. I have finished this course, and now I am looking forward to start at my own clnic. Thank you again!
This course is amazing, I would like really thank you for the professional approach and the very very useful information!!! You teach me a lot of things, I can’t imagine an on line course could have being so complete and satisfying, really really well done and I would recommend it to all of friends. I… think no other Italians acupuncturists take this course before, so it is a bit exiting to me to be one of the first. Read more “Dr Silvia Zamberlan, Italy. FEA Online Course, September 2018”
I would like to thank you for a wonderful course yesterday it was relaxed and simulating from the start. You put everyone at ease and due to the mixed backgrounds of all the practitioners in the room you made sure everyone was on a level playing field from the off. I would highly recommend others… to do this course as it is both interesting and rewarding. Your relaxed style of teaching is a breath of fresh air and you ensure people ask questions and get the answer in a way they understand. Read more “Paul Godwin, Loughborough, UK. FEA Workshop, June 2014”
I did the FEA course in September last year, it was fantastic and I am using my new skills.
Paul, it’s been a true pleasure learning cosmetic acupuncture with you. You are always available to answer my questions and it’s wonderful to know that even though I’m taking an online course, that an instructor makes the effort to respond to students right away. That means so much to me and I would highly recomend… this course to all my colleagues. I’m a new acupuncturist and have not had much experience needling facial points. Paul does a fantastic job breaking down the material into such a way that it is easy to learn. I also have just opened my own practice and have found that it is impossible right now for me to get away for a 2-3 day course. Paul’s course allows you to work at your own pace, which is perfect for someone who has work and home obligations. It was a true pleasure and I can’t wait to share my new skills with my clients!

The course content was fluid and the video footage extremely useful. I have really enjoyed the alternative acupuncture perspective.
All I can say is thank you Paul for a fantastic course. The videos were amazing and easy to follow. I have done online courses before, and I must stress this course was the best so far. I bought your book facial enhancement acupuncture clinical use and application, again what a good book. I will… use this as a reference, something I can keep going back to to help with my private practice. Again thank you for the feed backs on all the assignments, such a quick response. Again many many thanks. I would definitely recommend the course for anyone interested in cosmetic acupuncture. Read more “Jan Gilchrist, Llangollen, North Wales. FEA Online Course, November 2015”
The Facial Enhancement Acupuncture online course has been fantastic. Due to other commitments I couldn’t get to one of Paul’s sessions for several months, so being able to study the course in my own time has been a huge help and it has enabled me to complete the course much sooner than I would have… been able to otherwise. Paul has always been quick to reply to my emails and answer any questions I may have had. My assignments were marked quickly and I was able to progress through the course in good time. Thank you so much to Paul for designing this course, I’m sure that my patients will enjoy their Facial Enhancement Acupuncture treatments! Read more “Juliet Aitchison, UK.

Easy to follow instructions, I like to learn with short videos. I can go back to so this suited me perfectly.
The facial enhancement acupuncture course by Paul is extremely insightful and there was brilliant support throughout. I highly recommend it if you’re looking to progress in the field of cosmetic acupuncture.
I really enjoyed the course, covered with all aspects what we need to know.
I very much enjoyed this course. While I was disappointed not to be able to join some of my peers at ICOM recently to do the course with you in person, the online version has been excellent and has arguably allowed me to assimilate all the information more deeply over time than if I’d done… it in one short burst. Thank you so much for all your feedback and support. Read more “Ben Carrigan, London and Surrey, UK. FEA Online Course, January 2020”
Just to say a big THANK YOU for the masterclass day I had with you June 22nd in FEA. I thouroughly enjoyed it and by the end of the day felt so much more confident to go ahead and start practising.
I was lucky enough to have a 1:1 Facial Enhancement Masterclass with Paul. Paul is extremely knowledgeable and I learned a huge amount from him. He made the day interesting and relaxed and was happy to answer all of my many questions. The day was a perfect mix of observation and practical and I now… feel ready to start treating clients with facial enhancement acupuncture. Paul is also happy to help with queries after the course. Overall I had a fantastic day. Thanks Paul! Read more “Kaya Harper, Kent, UK. One-to-One Tuition, March 2019”

Hi Paul, just to say thanks so much for a fantastic course. Your support along the way has been really helpful and your feedback invaluable, can’t believe how much I’ve absorbed & how confident I feel already, even in my normal acupuncture practice I feel more confident treating facial conditions e.g. sinusitis, migraines etc. Loved… the pace of this course and the way it was presented, the results so far are fantastic (and not just on a superficial level), so very encouraging, I’m keen to get started.

Hi Paul, thanks for all your feedback and help. The course is great and I look forward to taking on new clients using your methods!
This was a fantastic course! I researched all different courses on facial rejuvenation and I am so happy that I chose this one. The course was very thorough and comprehensive which made me feel very comfortable carrying out the facial rejuvenation treatments. It was great to have feedback from Paul throughout the course as well.… I love the convenience of doing an online course and having a coach to guide me along the way.

I’m pleased with this course. It was great to do everything at my own pace, and I certainly feel more confident in needling the face now.
As with the FEA course, I thought it was really well structured. The use of video is great.

Thanks Paul. I’ve really enjoyed the course. It was a good mix of teaching and own research and very accessible even for a technophobe like me! I’d never owed intradermal needles before and previously only used seeds for Auriculo work and am now really excited to study these areas further.
…hope you had an enjoyable trip to India, we all here enjoyed your knowledge database and your warmth.
Thank you for everything. The course was awesome! Thanks for turning me on to the intradermal needles. I like using them!
I recently participated in Paul Adkins’ Masterclass Cosmetic Acupuncture course. Paul was friendly, professional and very helpful. I found the course to be informative, without being too padded with unnecessary information, interactive and we had plenty of opportunity to practice. It was a great day!
Thank you so much for a very thorough yet easy to read course. I felt confident to apply the techniques straight away and am so pleased I decided to do this.
I really enjoyed the course it was well structured and presented. I liked seeing the demonstration before having a go, and enjoyed the time dedicated to the hands on aspect. I also felt confident enough to go and conduct this treatment on a few volunteers and patients. I thought you were really helpful on the… day and very professional and would definitely recommend your course to any Acupuncturist. Read more “Emma, Midlands, UK. FEA Masterclass, 2004”
